And the Puppy Peaks Video Winners Are…

Posted on 09/05/13 33 Comments

Today we officially announce our winners from our recent Puppy Peaks video contest. I just have to say that the competition was intense. We had so many great videos that of the three of my “faves to win” didn’t even make the finals!!!  Everyone who entered a video in the contest is a big winner – a winner for taking action, for inspiring their dogs and of course for inspiring our entire community!

As this was a “contest,” there was meant to be only six winners (with one Grand Prize winner). Three winners where selected via the voting here on the blog and three were to be randomly selected. Here is the thing, I am about criteria when I am training my dog but I am also flexible enough to relax criteria when I am so inspired. 

With that in mind . . . I have been inspired and so I am altering my criteria for the winners here. Rather than just three winners on the blog, we are extending the same gifts to the entries of our top FOUR videos. Each of these people will get a 30-minute private lesson with me along with a few other amazing prizes. The Grand Prize won by Megan Meade includes TWO hours of training with me (online, over the phone or in person) plus a Kindle loaded with 10 Susan Garrett ebooks (some of which have never been released to anyone EVER before).

But that is not all. Because I was so inspired by each of the videos, I decided all entries need a prize so all of our participants are going to be given an invitation to a private online session with me . . . just for this group. Any questions you were planning on asking during a one-on-one with me can be answered in this group “coaching call.” So everyone is an extra big winner!

Now onto the “random” winners:  From the list of all of the people who submitted videos we did a random drawing (old school style) and videoed the process. Winners announced in the video clip below!

Today I am grateful for the enthusiasm and information that was shared in each of the great Puppy Peaks videos submitted. What I learned, is when I share information my audience likes to see my struggles and the path I take to overcome them. Thanks for that feedback, you can be certain there will be more of that on the new Puppy Peaks videos for 2013!

You can watch our winning videos below!  Congratulations to our talented and inspiring winners!  Look for an email in the coming days with information on how to claim your prizes.  And Melissa will also be sending out an email in the next few days with info on your Coaching Call!  Thanks to all who participated!

    Congrats to all. What great videos sent in by all!

    As everyone says the winning video is so inspiring, I am saddened that I cannot watch it in Germany, as it is blocked from viewing here.

    EXCELLENT job all, wonderful videos for sure ….but great job not only on your videos but also on the prize for all of us in PP’s – that new relationship we have with our pups and every pup to come into our lives in the future, “priceless” 🙂

    Great stuff PP!!!!!

    Wow! What a nice surprise.

    Susan, thank you so much for, well, for everything. You are such an inspiring & generous person. You have changed my life, or rather given me to tools to make my own changes.

    Congratulations to everyone! I thought all the videos were terrific.

    WOW! Susan what a super generous person you are 🙂 I was not in the competition, but I bet everyone that was is really happy. Love your comment about relaxing criteria when you are inspired!!! Life is so much more fun when you live this way. Living by strict rules, for ourselves and our dogs can be so demotivating. A big congratulations to the winners, which pretty much is everyone that took part.

    Huge congrats to Trudie and Jane! I loved your videos and am so happy for you! Congrats to Megan – how awesome for you! Also, Katie, you scared me a bit as I was looking at your votes go up and up and up! HAAHA – I am not competitive am I! I loved all the videos – ALL OF THEM – plus the ones I saw on FB! We all should be very proud. I also want to thank my McMahon clan for all their support during the voting. My family is awesome beyond words! Thank you Susan for the opportunity to be part of your SAY YES community. I love my Rockster so much but I would never had expected to train a JRT as they way Rocky was trained! I am so proud!

      I also want to say how awesome Marie-Pier’s video was. If I could have voted for 2 (besides myself, LOL – again I am not competitive am I), I would have voted for YOURS! It was very well done and I just loved it – the message was very powerful!


      • Shelley says:

    Huge congratulations to all of you! Not only the awesome winners, but all who submitted! It was so hard to choose on my part – I can’t imagine the decisions to make on Susan and her staff’s part! It was just nice to sit back and relax and laugh and tear up watching all of them. Have a grand time with your personal lessons with Susan! Being one that has been to one of her seminars, you will be on Cloud Nine!

    Trudy and Jane – it seems I know you both personally! Huge congrats to you both! 🙂 🙂 🙂

    Congratulations to everyone! Susan, you always pull thrilling surprises out of your hat! Even though I didn’t submit a video, I feel like a winner. Being engaged in watching, sharing, and voting for these videos provided me with inspiration and direction…and of course the desire to “re-up” on Puppy Peaks. What a thriving and positive community this is!


  23. Shelley says:

    I always use ‘imovie’

    Congrats to all the winners!

    I love seeing everyone’s journey with their puppies, because it is just like mine, 🙂

    Can’t imagine my puppie’s 1st year, without PP.

    Question: what video editing software is everyone using for their video’s?


    • Sharon McMahon says:
      Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 10:35am

      I use Windows Live Movie Maker – For me, it is very user friendly as I am not that computer savvy!


  25. Naomi says:
    Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 9:14am

    Well done! You are all winners!!!
